Still no Michelin PS4 for 18" wheel users?

I just went on the tire rack website and it showed nothing available for the OEM 18" sizes of 215/40-18 and 245/35-18.

Is there still no ETA on this?

No idea about ETA, but it looks like the PS4S is available. Why not get those instead?

No reason not to go for PS4S if you want Michelins.

You can switch to 225/40-18 and 255/35-18. It's a common upgrade for a 135i with no issues. Are those available?

I went for these and ordered stock sizes after running 225/255 in various other tires. I had some mild rubbing in the rear because a I run Bilstein B12s and 10mm spacers, so getting the extra room by going down to 245 was nice.

Also on stock 18" rim widths (7.5" front and 8.5" rear) you can't really use the extra tread width on the 225/255 (you can see based on where the tread hits the road/dirt marks you are never making full contact on the ground with the extra width).

Lastly - I find the steering feel and response is crisper with the 215 front vs 225 (less sidewall, and narrower contact patch).

That combined with the insane price of the 500s, was a no brainer for me.

I recently converted from Pilot Super Sports to the Sport 4S, both in the sizes noted above and couldn't be happier. Didn't think it would be possible to make a better tire than the Super Sport, but with the Sport 4S they pulled it off. I highly recommend them.

Agree 100%. Last year changed from the PSS to the PS4S. PSS were great, these are even better. 5 out of 5 in my book. My choice for max performance summer tires, which I get to enjoy all year long here in SoCal.

PS4 is a commuter tire with very poor steering response. You will be much happier with the "4S" tire, or maybe a tire from another brand such as Indy 500.

I am running the 4 S 235/40 on a 18x8.5 ET38 & a 265/35 on a 9.5 ET58 in the rear (ARC-8). I wish I had done a 225 in the front as large bumps can cause a rub on the fender and I don't want to pull them. I wish I had tried a 275 in the rear as I feel I have a little more room left to add another 5mm on the outside.

The lateral grip is amazing. Corners and off ramps are a blast and I feel like I am not even pushing the tires. I am FBO with a new clutch and MHD at 80% in 2nd gear, full power in third, currently glazing the tarmac as a shift from 2nd to 3rd.

In the process of a PS2 install with meth. Traction will be a new concern & I may need to look into a new tire, I don't want to loose that lateral grip though.
